Thank you for visiting the
UK Go Challenge site!
|The 2016 UK Go Challenge for UK schools (and other youth clubs) is here!.
If you enter for 2016, we will send you your tournament pack, so that you can run your heat at your own school or youth club before the end of June.
At the end of January, three clubs have already entered and have their packs.
Note the size of the basic pack remains 10 players, which makes it cheaper and easier for more schools and clubs to join in. However there are still lots of prizes in each pack, including the return of the ever popular logo bugs and a tote bag prize for the winner.
Again everyone can take part in the national Finals at the end of June or early July. If your players can't get to the Finals, you can still run your own heat and enjoy the Challenge. Likewise if you can't run a heat, it is still possible to get players to the Finals.
Also we always run, as part of the Finals, a Challengers' Tournament section for all beginners and novices, including those who have not taken part in a heat.
You can read about the previous Challenges on the news page and the results page.
The UK Go Challenge is organised and supported by the
British Go Association.
To enter the Challenge you could fill in the entry form, or
complete the form in the
2016 Challenge flyer (PDF).
The 2015 Finals were on Saturday 18th July at the
Howard Hall, next to the park in Letchworth Garden City.
See the Results of the 2015 Finals.
Details of the 2016 Finals will be available here later.
